SIGMA 50MM FOR SONY E-MOUNT

I started using Sony mirrorless cameras when we didnโ€™t even have lenses from Carl Zeiss Batis. Iโ€™m talking around 4 years back when I decided to move from Nikon and its been quite a journey with Sony Cameras.
Anyhow, now we almost have all the lenses available for Sony E-Mount but today Iโ€™m not talking about Sony Lenses.
Iโ€™m talking about one of the most famous lenses from Sigma Art 50mm f1.4

Earlier I tested 35mm f1.4 Art from Sigma, this was my second lens I tested for sigma and I need to agree this lens has some ability. Why I say that is because the lens actually works really well without any focusing issues, and agrees to use all the ability available in Sony cameras. I donโ€™t want to get technical with specs and all the other jazz cause you all must have already checked it out on all the other vlogs and blogs. Iโ€™m here to show what I could click with this lens and my experience.


Some random images I shot of the River while the sun light was falling onto the water, shot on the wide open to see what kind of bokeh we can create. I would give 8/10 cause I see a little chromatic aberration on the bokeh.


This image below I had little trouble to focus on the subject since I was trying to take a silhouette shot but I wouldnโ€™t mind cause every other lens has that kind of issues.


This is one of the images I shot at a wedding recently where I was shooting through a transparent glass. I was surprised, It did a pretty good job on focusing.

1st image I had trouble to focus even though I had my single auto focus point on the Female Subject but it still kept focusing the Male Subject so I ended up shooting on Manual Focus. 2nd shot took no time and focused right away.


I met this cute girl at a wedding. I convinced her parents to let me shoot her. She had no experience of posing and getting a shoot done. Itโ€™s a task to capture such moment when focusing and getting the right expression is very important there is a long story behind these images but my lens needed to be ready to get the right shot on the right time sigma didnโ€™t fail there which is extreme happiness for me.


We were shooting some products around the water side, I asked my fellow photographer friend to pose for me cause I wanted to see how it focuses while the person is wearing a glasses. You can take a look.


She was chilling at the location where I asked her to be in the moment but she got little conscious I still got one shot. If youโ€™re being little candid about your images. Itโ€™s quite fast.

I also got some of my self images shot with this lens. Looks good to me.

Iโ€™m pretty happy with the lens what I donโ€™t like about this lens is its too huge for 50mm but if you donโ€™t care about the size and weight this lens should be there in your bag pack without any second thoughts. Its priced reasonable for f1.4.

Hope you liked this blog. Thanks for coming around.

Smartphone Photography

SMARTPHONE PHOTOGRAPHY

Our generation is always asking for more. Technology has gone to another level where we have Drone flying in the sky and clicking what we see from through its eyes. If I think of it, when they launched cell phone it was just for calling and messaging and few games like snakes. We never asked for cameras, internet, wifi, video calls, WhatsApp, iMessage or anything. They gave us more comfort, asked us to chill relax - everything should be given even if you didn't want it. 

But hey, its easy to criticize! What they have made is beautiful, your life is much faster, you can finish all work within no time. Life is confusing but still so damn easy. Well, I just wanted to let these creators know that I'm proud of them and I love you guys what you all keep creating every single day. Hats Off! 

Smartphone Photography

I somehow get to learn a lot just by shooting regularly on my smartphone. I'll tell you how?
I don't really want to carry my Camera everywhere but I can always carry my smartphone - its SMART, you remember? There is a portrait mode which lets me click as if I'm shooting on bloody 50mm 1.8. There are applications like Snapseed which makes your life more easy cause it has everything you need to do a professional editing. Its small you can shoot whatever you want and nobody point a finger. You can put it in those places where you cant fix your cameras? Well, may be! All what I'm trying to say is, it teaches me more, gives me better ideas of angle, better understand about framing and this education I use when I'm doing my professional shoots. NO BIGGIE! 

Well here are some images from my recent tour to #Kasol with my iPhone!

Hyderabad to Bhutan - Travelled 5500kms in 20 days

Friend of mine she always said "do what your heart says". To be honest I got connected to travelling because of her. I always wanted to create something new and fascinating but I wasn't able to & why was that ? because I was not travelling much to inspire my work. I don't say you need to start travelling to inspire your work but I really want everyone to understand the joy of travelling. Cause when you're travelling you're on your own. There are challenges, joy, curiosity, new place, new people, culture, faith, weather, climate, food and many memories. 

AND MEMORIES, IS ALL WHAT YOU'LL TAKE TO YOUR GRAVE!
No body can take that away from you. The spark in your eyes, smile in your face will be priceless when you think about your journey.

Traveling 30kms away from your house is also called travelling. NO kidding! You'll learn for sure. 

I'm always looking for fun in my life. I think I live to have fun and enjoy everything I do. I'm still not sure what exactly I want to become but what I'm really sure about is that I need to be enjoying what ever I'm doing. I do not want to look back and say it my self oh shit! I wish I could do that now! Every time somebody walks upto me tells me my life is amazing I can do anything, i work with so many models, I get to meet celebs, travel - true man! My life is amazing and that is not because I'm a photographer or a film maker. My life is going to be amazing at any point of time cause "I do, what I love" 

So, here are some of my pictures I clicked while I was travelling with my buddies - Thariq Hussain, Anil Agarwal, Rohan Kumar, Rohit Kabra 

These images are inter connected. And I really want you all to have free time and look at these images. These are just not any random images I've really waited for the moment, I've really spent a lot of time in all the images. And the best part is, you all will find your self some where there & I can asure you that. 

I shoot travel to inspire my self, i share my experiences cause I don't want this to go wasted. I hope you'll connected to these images, hope you all found your self some where there, I really hope to see you all being really happy with what ever you do.

Do let me know how you like these images. Thank You :)

Europe is always a good idea

You must have heard that if you plan to visit Europe. You must have atleast 2 months to see around few great places but, hey! I had to finished that trip in 20 days and I managed to go around to all the awesome places - touch and run to the next one.

Paris - City of Fashion & of-course LOVE!

I spent some great time while I was traveling there, got my work inspired from the people, and the architecture. But must tell you all that one trip is not enough for the whole europe, you need to have good amount of time & lots of money to travel europe.
